What's Happening in District 5950?
Twice a month, the Rotary Club of South Metro Minneapolis Evenings meets in a hotel near the Minnesota River. Young people trickle through the hotel’s front doors and gather at a long wooden table in the bar for happy hour. It’s not actually happy hour, but that’s what they call this casual gathering before their club meeting. It’s a nontraditional club, which has less to do with the average membership age of 33 than the fact they meet after work and tend toward activities like rock climbing, Whirly Ball, and escape rooms. For membership month, learn more about this innovative club.
The August issue of the Rotarian magazine has an eight page Membership article in it.  Here is a glimpse of our unique SMME Club.  Of the 500+ Rotary Districts in the world, RI chose only a few of them to get membership tips from, and D5950 was one of them! (Look for it in your USPS mailbox)  Go to the back as well and read about our own SMME club. Click here See the full online August issue.
Under Past District Governor, Bob Halagan, clubs were encouraged to submit some numbers to track our serving in 2017-2018.  We don't mean to brag... but we did well... very well!
